Cancer Screen Week: December 6 – 10, 2021

Cancer touches almost everyone in some way. However if diagnosed early, many cancers can be successfully treated – and in many cases, even prevented. Yet last year, according to cancerscreenweek.org, one-third of Americans missed their regularly scheduled cancer screenings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There’s no need to delay your cancer screening. Most screening facilities are open with clinically-proven safety measures in place.

Check out the infographic “5 Reasons to Get Your Cancer Screening” and visit the Screening & Prevention section of your Work Stride website. There you’ll find customized tools and basic information on preventing cancer and the screening tests and screening schedule that apply to you and your family members. It will also help you understand if you have risk factors that make your chances of a cancer diagnosis more likely and how you can reduce your risk.

This holiday season, give yourself a gift: schedule whatever cancer screenings are available to you. If you have questions about screening guidelines, reach out to your Work Stride oncology nurse navigator, at 844-446-6229 or by email, at managecancer@jh.edu.
